    An excellent way to enjoy a scenic view from the water of all of Sydney Harbour’s best spots. The food was excellent and overall the staff, table settings and beverages provided a fine dining experience. The boat was very clean, and a visit to the rooftop is a must.

    This is a lovely experience on the best harbour in the world. the food was very good and there was plenty of food available as well as a drinks package.This is highly recommended but only when the weather is good. On the Saturday night I went on the Tall ships , the weather was wet and rainy and the very small tarp that was used did not stop the rain coming in.
    This is a must for people to experience the harbour on ships of yesteryear.

    What a great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Great food and wine, and great company (with friends). Staff were only to happy to continue to fill up our glasses whether it be inside or while we were outside enjoying all the amazing sights. The weather turned but it didn't dampen the night - the lightening show was spectacular. A great night out, great value - highly recommend.

    We really enjoyed this cruise around the Harbour. In fact it was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Sydney. David was an excellent host, down to earth and informative.

    We were lucky in that my wife and I were the only passengers that day, but there would never be more than a maximum of eight. If you prefer a more personal experience with the opportunity to interact and ask questions this is for you.

    Beautiful clean boat with great amenities, staff were amazing, very friendly and great service.
    Food was delicious and served in a timely manner, drink orders were easy from the table.
    Plenty of room to move around without feeling crowded.
    Would have been good to have some sort of commentary about the sites we were seeing.

    Great experience from ferry travel to actual visit of the zoo! Cable car is included with general entry and you don’t need to get a bus from the Taronga ferry terminal as previous comments have stated. Zoo is small but they really do care about the animals and the environmental impact and destruction of natures home. Views of Opera House and Harbour bridge from points around the zoo are spectacular. The seal show and bird free flight are definitely worth seeing. The only thing I noticed is that it was cheaper to book direct with Captain Cook cruises at Circular Quay Wharf rather than via online or the Visit a City app.

    We have sailed with SeaSydney on the Vivid Cruise for the past 2 years and have enjoyed it immensely, it is a great way of seeing the city lit up from the harbour.

    Heaps of fun for the family, kids 8&12 loved it. We found it cheaper to buy ticket online. Our driver was great, full of smiles and genuinely looked like he loved his job. Highly recommend

    The cruise provided an excellent way to view the lights. It started at Darling Harbour and returned there.
    We got there early to collect the tickets as there are loads of people everywhere. Many places to eat before or after the cruise. Would certainly recommend.

    We did the Penfolds gold dinner cruise in the private Endeavour Room with our group of 20. It was fabulous and I would recommend this to all Sydney locals for a special night out on our sparkling harbour.
    Service was great and very friendly. A good selection of wines and a fantastic Degustation menu. Everything just perfect!
    We will be back for more.
    Thanks to Angelina at Captain Cook to make this a truly memorable event!
